Snaps of….

While in NYC, I quickly snapped a photo of the Statue of Liberty.  I was on a moving boat that was still for all of 30 seconds, and I was soaken wet to boot!  Anyhoo, I loved seeing the giant beauty and if I ever go back, I'll definitely take the time to see her up close and pay my respect to such a historic piece of our country.

Alphabet Art Photography – A Gift I Made for My Friend

Just the other day, my good friend Vicki had her *ahem* 20 birthday.  I thought about what to get her for two weeks and then I actually remembered something.  It seems my memory fails me often these days so I was tickled to remember.  Anyways, we had been browsing a local store, Vicki's Gifts, when she saw this one item and made a statement about ...

Preserving 2010 Photo Favorites {Giveaway}

2010 is almost over and with that, I find myself reflecting on the things I've experienced and accomplished throughout the year.  It's been a great year, however, I did find myself having mental exhaustion that affected me offline and on.  It wasn't until recently that I nursed that exhaustion and so now, with a fresh outlook, I look forward to ...

Thank God for Cowboys Photo Book

When's the last time you actually printed photos or made an album?  For most of us, probably a lifetime ago because how the tech world has evolved but I find that my boys still will go through our old photo albums of when they were under 5 and just talk & laugh about past times.  Walmart asked me if I wanted to try out their Quick Memorybook ...
